WHILE SHE SLEEPS will be bringing their fervent live show to the biggest venues they’ve ever headlined in January 2020. Having released their new album ‘SO WHAT?’ to critical acclaim and fan furore earlier this year, the Sheffield, punk-fuelled metal band will be playing at London’s famed Brixton Academy and Manchester Academy in January 2020. In what’s sure to be one of THE metal line-ups of the year, Sleeps have enlisted stellar support acts in the form of Buffalo heavyweights Every Time I Die and Boston’s Vein. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 10am.
Says guitarist Sean Long “We don’t know how to do anything else. This is what we were born to do. These shows are going to be the embodiment of our entire life’s work and we are going to give it all back to the fans. It’s going to be biblical. We aren’t slowing down anytime soon. The North Still Stands For Nothing and it always will.”
The announcement of this sure-to-be-epic pair of shows comes off the back of an intense run of worldwide touring for the Sleeps band of brothers, which has already seen them sell out The Roundhouse in London, where they played complete with a live choir. They’ve also headlined across Europe and Asia, as well as delivering massive festival sets in North America, Australia and the UK & Europe, including 2000trees just last week.
You can discover more about While She Sleeps’ ‘SO WHAT?’ journey in a 40 minute documentary on YouTube here. The album, produced by Carl Bown, has earned the band much-deserved Kerrang! and Heavy Music Award nominations, as well as seeing their monthly listeners on Spotify balloon to over 1 million around its release.
